New Brunswick releases five-year strategy aimed at reducing harm to children

FREDERICTON — Raising awareness of child Internet exploitation and bullying prevention are among 102 so-called "action items" included in a new strategy for the prevention of harm to children and youth in New Brunswick.

The five-year strategy was launched today in Fredericton by the provincial government.

Social Development Minister Kathy Rogers says the government wants to be a partner in protecting the most vulnerable, especially children and young people.

Norm Bosse, the province's child and youth advocate, says it may not be possible to eliminate all types of harm against children, but there is a commitment to making measurable progress.

He says the strategy provides benchmarks to measure progress over the next five years.
